THE STORY:

'This motorcycle has saved the lives of many children here.'

For many of us diseases like Ebola and polio are impossible to imagine. But in countries across Africa it is a very different story.

A gift of just $30 can help us to mobilise a health worker for a week so they can see up to 450 people  and keep them safe from deadly, but preventable diseases.

Kenya, like most countries across Africa has been declared polio free, but constant vigilance is required to make sure that this hard won victory against a terrible disease isn’t reversed. Thanks to Riders for Health, health workers with reliable and well maintained vehicles can reach every community in their area. It means they can make regular visits to families. They can spot diseases and act quickly to prevent serious outbreaks.

Joel Otieno is a Clinical Community Health Assistant based in the Rongo district of Kenya. On a regular visit to Matagaro he noticed that Alphonse, a three and a half year old boy, was showing signs of polio. Joel advised Alphonse’s mother to take her son straight to the local hospital.  Joel’s discovery also meant regional vaccination campaign was launched immediately.

'Had it not been for the Riders for Health motorcycle I would have not reached Alphonse. We would not have realised on time that Polio is already here with us. This motorcycle has saved the lives of many children here in Rongo, Kenya and across the borders,' said Joel.

Joel’s story show just how important strong health systems are for preventing the outbreak of diseases.

Yet if we can’t reach remote communities, they can’t receive the health care they need.

Please can you spare a gift of $30 to keep a health worker like Joel on the road for one week, reaching 450 people with essential health care.

And, with your help Riders will receive a share of $4m, donated by the Skoll Foundation.
